Ryan + Michelle

Williamsburg Wedding Photographer

I’ve gotten to a point now where I have met with numerous couples and have had several consultations.  If I was to pick some favorites, Ryan and Michelle’s consultation would be at the top of the list! Not only did they generously offer to take me out to lunch, but it was so comfortable and natural just sitting and hearing about their story.  I left Red Lobster that afternoon knowing that this was a special couple and that I was going to enjoy being a part of their big day!

As Michelle’s sisters toasted to the newlywed couple during the reception, they both mentioned that Ryan and Michelle love each other in such a unique and tender way.  I smiled when I heard this.  I realized by being along side Ryan and Michelle for the duration of their wedding day, just how true that was.  It wasn’t uncommon for me to glance at Ryan at the exact moment that he was winking at his new bride from across the room. They truly have an incredible relationship and the joy that they share is contagious.

It was such a privilege to be a part of their lives during this exciting season of new beginnings.  I absolutely LOVED getting to know their friends and family. Ryan and Michelle, thank you for the opportunity to serve you and capture your day! I wish you the very best! Congratulations!!!



I LOVED Michelle’s bouquet! You’ll probably pick up on that after you see that I blogged 3 different pictures of it! haha



Don’t they look like fun?! …They were!
